8m. The front face of the Leaf trending left via a flake and tiny groove. Poorly protected, so it needs a steady head.

Scary at the top, better pro would be required to completely believe the grade.

A lovely problem, couldn't find anywhere for any protection, but the crux is where it should be ;-), and all it requires is some nifty foot work so you can make the loooong reach

My mates had more problems seconding this than Great Buttress Arete ! As to leading - one wire behind a dodgy flake at less than half height doesn't give you much confidence, but the moves are pleasant enough.

The wire would hold and the only tricky move is right next to it.
